Excellent and strangely rare
This is a company supplied car and has done high mileage, mainly at speed.
Handling is superb although the 2.0 engine is underpowered. I would have liked the 2.5 but couldn't afford the tax!
One negative is that the interior plastics are very easy to mark and not easy to clean.
Economy is not great with permanent 4wd, but will hit 40mpg on a motorway run.
I also like the scarcity value. Mine is the only saloon I have seen in the UK in 15 months! Makes me feel I know something others don't.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
